"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Cameron's Acorn #2

The Cabinet Office Minister, Francis Maude, will be announcing the details of the National Citizen Service, part of Cameron's 'Big Society', later today.

In theory, it's a great idea - encourage more teens to participate in society and learn that 'service is its own reward' (something our Public Servants with their gold-plated pensions and high salaries would do well to remember).

In practice, it's going to be tricky - not because teenagers won't want to take part but because, like the rest of the Big Society project, it will be overseen by Common Purpose graduates and Civil Servants trained up by the government.  It's an extension of the state, not society.

Reasons why are here.

  1. You all over there need to fight this. It smacks of past Marxist movements.

  2. And if I understand correctly it will, like the rest of the "big society" initiative - only affect England.

  3. Rationing is coming GV. They must know that we cannot pay for our upkeep internationally now that the funny money scam has hit the rocks before they could steal all the Indian and ChiComm wealth.

  4. Hi Trestin - I don't know what it is but we can't seem to get an English equivalent of your Tea Party together either! Cameron is following Obama, Alinsky, Blair on this - all by design, not coincidence.

    Hi Wyrdtimes - yes, I think you're right. Cameron talks about his support for the Union yet carries on with policies which seem destined to drive it apart.

    I've been telling my boys to 'stock up' for a while now, Incoming, but I think they think I'm nutty :-) The way things are going people won't have enough cash to stock up. What with the huge agro-chemical companies pushing GMO hand in hand with the 'green' eco-movement they'll soon have control of the food supply. Once that happens, we're finished.
